All the rumors about the Cardinals and signing players is about trying to get WR Anquan Boldin locked up, but as Scout.com reports, another player on the short list is LB Karlos Dansby.
While WR Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett’s contract demands are justified due to their tremendous performance, the Arizona Cardinals’ front office has every right to hold them to their current contracts. Both players have already received restructured deals after outplaying their rookie contracts and upping the ante every time further success is experienced is an unpractical business procedure for an NFL team.
Also working against Boldin and Dockett is the fact that they went through the same process a year ago, yet wound up being major contributors towards the Cardinals’ first ever Super Bowl berth. Arizona has focused its resources on other players this offseason, such as QB Kurt Warner and SS Adrian Wilson, and is still seeking a long-term deal for LB Karlos Dansby.
Dansby was slapped with the franchise tag for the second consecutive year and this could be his final season in the desert if a multi-year deal isn’t agreed upon.
